Hey! That’s a great looking Copter! Clear canopy, has the original gas tank. Looks to be unused? Give it plenty of “clear space” to fly or she’ll end up in a tree.

Keep an eye on that bubble canopy!

After repeated runs, engine vibration and hard thumps can wallow out the the holes and the pegs that hold the canopy. Back in the day, one of ours had a blade come loose at altitude, and it also flung away its canopy on the way down.

We found the loose blade, but the Skycopter flew as a "Convertible" the rest of its life!!! Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

All right Eric, great score and looks like a nice one.

Happy that I had a small part in you getting one.  Careful starting it, one just like it christened Mark in the hobby when he stuck his finger in there.  That propeller is sharp!

Choose a nice calm day with lot's of space for your maiden.


Good luck - Bob

Thanks Guys , i plan on just a half tank on the first run OR is this a bad idea because it may not go high enough to start the counterrotating for descent ? The neighbors front yard is about 2 acres may bee a good place and close to home if goes to the trees Small Cox Logo Thanks for the tips Kim i know you ben around them flying or have one . This Site Rocks!

Nice copter you got there. I would say try a half tank. Will still be a good run with it. Just fill it up half way and time it. From that you could use your judgement if it is enough to get you high enough or not I would think.
